Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith said today the people had already decided to whom they would vote at the upcoming presidential election and those defeated should allow the person elected to rule the country.

He said this at a Sunday school ceremony held at the Asokarama Temple in Kalutara South.

“The people know how to use their votes. Mere shouting and running down their rivals others will not attract voters,” the Cardinal said and recalled a reply given by former president D.B. Wijethunga when he was asked whether he would contest again.

“I have had enough of politics,” he said.

The Cardinal said those who lose should accept defeat.

“We must help create a beautiful country. Some politicians level false allegations against their rivals. Some contestants take presidential election as an opportunity to hinder others mentally or disgrace them with false allegations. They should not act in this manner,” the Cardinal said. (Sunil S.

    I am sorry to detect a certain bias, an undertone supporting one candidate, in the recent utterances and actions of His Eminence.

    cardinal is becoming very political. People who know whom to vote also know what to do after the elections. I don't think cardinal's advice is needed in this regard. Please save you sermons for the Sunday school
